Vernon Police Department

Police have arrested the man accused of robbing a Vernon bank last summer and threatening employees with a bomb.

Dionige Nasiadka, 22, of South Windsor, was charged July 4 in connection with the June 2013 robbery of the People’s United Bank at 35 Talcottville Road in Vernon.

Nasiadka is accused of approaching a bank employee in the parking lot around 8:30 a.m. June 21, 2013 and telling her he had a bomb. Police said he followed her inside and demanded money, then stole an employee’s car to get away.

The robbery sparked a massive manhunt that shut down part of Interstate 84.

Nasiadka was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, three counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of first-degree larceny, one count of third-degree larceny and one count of second-degree strangulation.

He’s being held on $500,000 bond at the Vernon Police Department and is due in court July 7.

Police are still actively investigating the robbery.
